The new Corvette moves the 6.2L V8 engine behind the driver, altering the weight distribution and allowing for staggering 0-60 times. With the $5,000 optional Z51 package, the car hits 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, as fast as the previous generation ZR1 Corvette!

The all new C8 Corvette sends torque through an 8-speed dual clutch transmission, which can shift in less than a tenth of a second (100 milliseconds).
